and what a reading list, omg. as i understand it, the choice of books is purely illogical and unrelated to market or other weird values, and because of that, it is instantly wonderful. thumbs up.
(funny ohboy they think like me kind of moment: "but those maps tend to signify the fame level of the books rather than their literary merit; they also tend to be dominated by white men, most of them dead.")
strange choices: Washington and Sherman Alexie, Massachusets and the Bell Jar.
